Feng Shui helped Geoff Boycott recover from throat cancer and now the former England legend has recommended the ancient art to Manchester United striker Michael Owen to help reverse his poor form. Owen has not scored a league goal since September and Boycott said he had written to him before Christmas, urging him to consult a Feng Shui expert. Owen, for the moment, hasn’t given him the boot yet.

“I wrote to Michael Owen a while back to say, ‘Look at this and see what you think’. “You need help from anywhere you can get it and you have to be open-minded about these things,” Boycott told the Daily Express. “He hasn’t replied to my letter yet but if he does I will put him in touch with some experts in Feng Shui and see where that takes him. During treatment for cancer, I got into Feng Shui and slept in different rooms, facing different ways as the Master who came here recommended. They believe that as you sleep you heal, so it is important your head is facing your own personal health direction. People who don’t know anything about it say it is rubbish, but it worked for me. I’m alive.”
